The Best of Muddy Waters on vinyl in original mono for the first time in 30 years. This album contains a dozen of Muddy Waters’ most successful recording efforts, circa 1957! There’s Hoochie Coochie Man, rich in reference to voodoo charms, plus faster mover I Just Want To Make Love To You! And in Louisiana Blues, Rollin’ Stone, and I Can’t Be Satisfied, Muddy’s guitar is especially strong. Also included is Honey Bee, where call-and-response is eloquently in evidence: his guitar responding to his vocal “call.” The dolorous Standing Around Crying and Still A Fool are present, as is the oft-covered jump blues I’m Ready bonafide blues hit records, from the original Chess masters.
